#askAPL What are some of the things you feel sets APL apart from other literary agencies?

#askAPL We are a mission-driven agency with a focus on representing and supporting authors whose voices are traditionally underrepresented in the publishing industry. We also have a strong international focus; we're multilingual and come from all over.

#AskAPL Find a job at an agency, or in another part of the publishing industry, such as a publisher or a scouting firm. Networks are crucial, so join organizations where you can meet editors and authors. twitter.com/bellaanddabeas…

I'll also add that you should read often and widely - get to know what books are out there, discover your own tastes, challenge yourself with new genres. Pay attention to who is publishing all these books too. It'll help you determine what type of agent you want to be #AskAPL

#AskAPL What role does having a twitter or other social media following play in your decision to take on a writer?

Generally speaking, for fiction, social media doesn't really factor much in my decision, if at all. Obviously a big platform helps no matter what but it's not necessary. For nonfiction, platform is much more important and social media can play a big role in that #AskAPL

#AskAPL what are some of the most common reasons you decide not to sign a book?

#AskAPL If, after talking with the author, our visions don't align for the project or if I don't have sufficient experience in a particular genre to be the best agent for that book.

#AskAPL What is the longest you & a client have worked (either together or just the client) on a project? The shortest?

#askAPL I've worked with clients for several years and many many drafts before submitting a project. And I've sold something within a few days after taking on a client.

@agent_ayesha @firerooster @serenemaria #AskAPL -- hey @agent_ayesha, thanks for doing this! Do you have any advice for a new author who isn't sure how to market herself / potential projects?

#askAPL Find communities of writers to support you; find mentors; publish pieces that reflect your passions and the themes you focus on in your writing; consider what makes your work distinct.

Carol L Park @CarolLPark2

#AskAPL Imagine receiving a stellar debut novel which has more than 100,000 words. If other conditions were right (ie author willing to make changes and do promo work), would you consider it?

I'd consider it if I really loved the novel and had an idea of what it needed to be a more manageable length, and if the author is willing to put in the work! It also depends on the genre and what type of book it is #AskAPL

#AskAPL what are some of the most common reasons you decide not to sign a book?

For me, I have to a) love it, b) have a good idea of how I want to pitch it/position it, and c) have enough time at the moment to put in the work. Without these things, I don't think I'd be the best agent for the book #AskAPL
